The Village Crook and Other Stories


SKU: 978-976-8245-54-0 Category:

The Village Crook and Other Stories is a humourous and charming collection of short stories that highlights the traditions and idiosyncrasies of people from rural Jamaica. From Maas Fawni’s trickery to Dudley the Lunatic’s antics, you will be grinning from ear to ear or dying with laughter one minute, and shaking your head in disbelief the next, as you move from story to story.  A must read for those who appreciate good literature reminiscent of ‘old time Jamaica’.
